, I can’t help but be reminded of Fendi’s Summer 2016 fairytale Haute Couture collection 👑: The show opened with model of the moment Kendall Jenner, wearing a blueish grey astrakhan coat with a full swing skirt, similar to that of the Dior new look aesthetic, setting the pace of what was to follow. More appropriately one could have started with, “Once upon a time, in a far away land there lived a Princess” as the 90 year old house, dedicated their collection to childhood – full of Brothers Grimm mystique and fairytales. To be exact, Karl Lagerfeld referenced the Norwegian fairytale West of the Sun and East of the Moon illustrated by Kay Nielsen which was the inspiration behind the extravagant gowns and outerwear. At times direct motifs from the fairytale were replicated in many individual pieces, coming out as pure, yet bold.
The exhibition was a feast for the eyes, where craftsmanship was other worldly and was on another level. A singular piece needed 1,200 working hours to be completed thus cementing the notion that yes fashion can be fine art masterpieces. Motifs included magical forests scenes and heroic goldy-haired Princes winning over the heart of their damsel in distress. Simply breathtaking, awe-inspiring and a flashback to remembering our own childhood worlds filled with singing woodland creatures and fairy god mothers. #retroread #modernmelange #hautecouture #fendi
It seems Interview’s 15 minutes of fame lasted 50 years 👏🏼🖤 With the shuttering of the famous glossy created by pop artist Andy Warhol, it’s another blow to the print publishing industry. And a reminder: That evolution is inevitable💭 What will come in the wake of Interview’s demise? Well, many seeds of talent were planted: artists, stylists, models, photographers, it boys and girls, editors, writers and more found their exposure, footing and validation in its pages. Interview was a giant, and as these seeds of talent grow and flourish, the legacy of the magazine will live on and thrive in a brave new media landscape that will always clamour for change. A legacy that will last well beyond Interview’s “15 minutes” of fame🖤🖤 #NKPOV @interviewmag
Friends since 2007, love you bb 💙🐊
Debbie Harry, Interview Magazine, 1979 | Incredibly sad to hear how this iconic magazine founded by Andy Warhol in 1969 has folded. A tremendous hit for the cultivation of pop-culture - symbolic of the times 💔 #interviewmagazine

’s recent post reminded me how brilliant Cathy Horyn’s article on Clare Waight Keller’s Givenchy was, particularly the photography by Erick Madigan Heck. I believe Heck’s work was a great homage to Irving Penn’s 1950 photograph of his wife Lisa Fonssagrives for Vogue. It just proves that real couture and a real couture sensibility endure the passage of time beautifully. The first slide is the inspiration point and the following two are from the article published earlier this year. Sublime. Waight Keller did a stunning job with the gown for the royal wedding.
This post is text heavy, since it's about Giusi Ferre's book 'Giorgio Armani: Radical Gender', which examines the ways that Mr Armani influenced and subverted the gender norms of fashion from the 1970s until the present. The book is rather light on text, compared to John Potvin's much more comprehensive book on Giorgio Armani, 'Empire of the Senses', and contains mostly photos from advertising campaigns. I didn't include these in the post because you can just Google them with the names of photographers who shot those campaigns like Aldo Fallai, Peter Lindbergh, Paolo Roversi, Tom Munro and Ellen von Unwerth.
The section where Mr Armani expressed his regret for not staying true to his style and aesthetic values when he designed one collection is quite revealing. The fashion critics loved that collection, but the general public didn't. This experience would shape Mr Armani's defining characteristic - his consistency and dedication to certain aesthetic values, ignoring fickle trends or the opinions of fashion critics.
